Help in Keeping Your Financial Resolutions

Friday, September 06, 2013
A recently released TransUnion survey revealed that nearly 25 percent of consumers say they have abandoned the financial resolutions they set in January. Many might agree that, no matter what life situation you find yourself in, following through with the goals you aspire to reach each year can be difficult – and require a fair amount of self-discipline. For those aiming to improve their finances, however, the challenge becomes intensified when trying to cope with the financial stress caused by dwindled savings, maxed-out credit cards, and various monthly obligations, such as utility bills, car payments, and student loan debt. Additionally, unforeseen circumstances such as a personal illness or job loss can plunge already vulnerable borrowers further into debt, impeding their ability to regain their financial footing.
